Emerging Leaders MADDThrough volunteer projects, members learn about local needs and do the hands-on work to make an impact. Teams of members do the research, plan the project and roll up their sleeves to get it done. Projects include serving community meals, maintaining Born Learning Trails, raking lawns annually for elderly and disabled residents and other service projects.
